Breaded Turkey Cutlets with Brown Gravy

Batter up! This bodacious breading for turkey cutlets is Thanksgiving dinner simplified, and free from gluten and the top eight allergens. These cutlets fit the bill not only for the holiday, but for any night of the week–quick, easy and delicious! It’s like Thanksgiving dinner year-round. A cutlet is a thin, boneless slice of meat which speeds up the cooking time for this quick entrée. You can also use chicken in place of turkey. Here are the steps to making these delicious turkey cutlets. Step #1 Cut the turkey breast into ½-inch slices. Or to make it easier, ask your local butcher to slice the breast into cutlets for you. Step #2 Place cutlets between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using a mallet, pound the cutlets working from the middle outwards, until they are about ¼-inch thick. You can always cut in half before breading if the pieces are too large. Transfer cutlets to the refrigerator while you set up your breading station. Setup for the Standard Breading Procedure Right-handed cooks work from left to right. Reversing the pans, left-handed cooks work from right to left. Step #3 Now you’re ready to bread the turkey. One by one, dredge each cutlet with the flour blend in bowl 1, coating evenly and firmly packing the breading onto the cutlet. Transfer the cutlet to bowl 2, coating evenly. Here the liquid is soaking into the flour and forming a thick wet coating on the turkey. Remove from milk mixture, letting excess liquid drain off. Place in bowl 3 and coat evenly with flour blend, firmly packing breading onto cutlet. Repeat process until all cutlets have been breaded. Step #4 Heat skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Coat bottom of pan with ¼-inch vegetable oil. When oil is hot and shimmering, add two cutlets. Sauté until brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Step #5 When all cutlets are sautéed, transfer to a baking pan lined with foil. Bake cutlets in preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes until cooked through. Serve with brown gravy and all the holiday fixings. Did you know? Some culinary historians believe Scrooge’s gift of a Christmas turkey to the Cratchit family helped cement the turkey’s place at the center of the holiday meal.

Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Makes 4 servings Free of gluten and the top eight allergens Method Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut the turkey breast into ½-inch thick slices. To make it easier, ask your local butcher to slice the breast into cutlets for you. Place between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using a mallet, pound the cutlets working from the middle outwards, until they are about ¼-inch thick. You can cut in half before breading if the piece is too large. Refrigerate until needed. In a medium bowl, combine tapioca flour, cornmeal, amaranth flour, potato starch and sorghum flour. Mix well and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together flaxseed meal and water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Portion 1 cup of flour blend into a bowl. Add salt and white pepper and mix well. Set aside. To the remaining flour blend, add thyme, oregano and paprika. Mix well. Set aside. Place the milk in a bowl. Return to flaxseed mixture and vigorously whisk; it will be gelatinous. Add flaxseed mixture to milk and stir to combine. Assemble your breading station starting with cutlets, followed by bowl of flour blend with salt and pepper. Next line up the milk mixture. The third bowl will be the flour blend with thyme, oregano and paprika. Finally, have a pan ready to hold the breaded cutlets. To start the breading process, dredge each cutlet one by one with the flour blend in the first bowl, coating evenly and firmly packing the breading onto the cutlet. Transfer cutlet to the bowl with milk mixture, coating it evenly. Here the liquid is soaking into the flour and forming a thick wet coating on the turkey. Remove from milk mixture, letting excess milk drain. Place in third bowl and coat evenly with flour blend, firmly packing breading onto cutlets. Repeat until all cutlets have been breaded. Heat skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Coat bottom of pan with ¼-inch vegetable oil. When oil is hot and shimmering, add two cutlets, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Sauté until brown, 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. It may be necessary to add a little more oil to the pan. Be sure to bring new oil to proper temperature before adding cutlets. When all cutlets are sautéed, transfer to a baking pan lined with foil. Bake cutlets for approximately 8-10 minutes until cooked through. Serve with brown gravy and all the holiday fixings. Recipe Note:
  • If egg allergy is not an issue, two lightly beaten eggs can be substituted for the flaxseed meal and water.
